Jeweler Nina Jones will present a program about the history and value of diamonds at the June 9 meeting of the Woodford County Historical Society.

The meeting will be held in the Activity Room of the Apostolic Christian Home, 610 W. Cruger at 7:00 PM. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Directions:  Enter the driveway between the Home and the Church and descend to the large parking lot. Go through the large glass double doors and down the hall to the elevator. Take the elevator to the second floor and follow the signs to the Activity Room.

Jones has studied jewelry and gems for many years and has a wealth of knowledge to share. Jones operated a store in Germantown Hills for 10 years and moved it to Eureka 3 years ago when she bought Gangloff Jewelry from Mark Hinrichsen.

Jones is retiring in October and has sold the business to Lillia McClure-Harrter. It will then be known as Lillia’s Jewelry.
